The next big step for MyCiTi is Phase 2A, a multi-year project to provide direct, scheduled, safe, affordable public transport to more than 30 communities along the city’s busiest transport corridors - stretching from Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain to Wynberg and Claremont.
It forms part of the City's vision to connect all residents to work, school, service and leisure opportunities through integrated, quality public transport that will benefit generations to come, and is funded by national government and City rates.
Trunk routes will operate via Govan Mbeki Road and form the foundation of services, travelling along dedicated bus lanes where possible and serving stations along the way for safe, easy route transfers. This will enable a significant time saving for commuters and create new opportunities for access to work, school and leisure.
The work required to accommodate Phase 2A will also help revitalise areas all along the corridor through road and intersection upgrades, landscaping, wider pavements and improved street lighting for pedestrians and cyclists, signage, street furniture and public art. Together, these improvements will benefit the local economy, attract development and create new business opportunities.
The concept design for the main routes and stations connecting Phase 2A were approved in 2016 and a separate, outstanding portion in 2019. This followed extensive public participation in 2015 with all affected communities. Phase 2A builds on many lessons learnt from Phase 1 and will benefit many, many more passengers from areas including Mitchells Plain, Lentegeur, Phola Park, Khayelitsha, Nolungile, Gugulethu, Crossroads, Manenberg, Hanover Park, Philippi, Nyanga, Ottery, Plumstead, Diep River, Strandfontein, Claremont, Wynberg, Constantia and Hout Bay.
